Each year, the Church family chooses two lucky clients at Arcare North Shore to give gifts to!
Adding to the Christmas Spirit, the lucky clients were Mavis Beer and Michael Edwards.
Mavis could not believe it when little Ella and Xavier came bounding over to her, with a present in their hands!
Wrapped in their hand-painted paper, Mavis thanked them profusely.
Mavis was gifted two turtle statues, a decorative orchid plant, as well as a crafty Christmas tree handmade by the children together.
Xavier practiced his handwriting and had even written the card on behalf of his sister.
Mavis could not be more overjoyed as the smile never left her face!
Mike also could not be more excited when Xavier and Ella entered his room carrying his gifts!
Mike was gifted a plush toy that resembles his old dog Matey, as well as a bean bag table game toss.
To top it off, Mike also received his own Crafty Christmas tree.
‘That was really really nice!’ Mike commented.
The Church family’s kind act of giving reminded the clients of their close connections to the community and truly made them feel a part of it.
We look forward to Ella and Xavier bringing more joy next year!
